Wow - I hadnt gotten to this one yet. Thx Mike D! Perfect Friday booster!

Nicely designed set list. That is the foundation of this show. Starts off gentle, but gets serious quick. ebbs and flows sweetly. The band's execution is pinpoint, but organic. Gentle exolorations with crisp movement. Its hard to mark the high points when there are no low points!

...!!! and then chemical brothers? that was everybody's jawn in jr.high/high school (right? right?)

Bean--Lotus is scheduled to play the three river arts festival on June 18th, at 7:30pm. They probably won't play a very long set but hopefully that means it'll be FOCUSED. It'll be my first time seeing them outside of Illadelph, as I'm moving to Pitt in a few days

Nice recording---see you around at shows perhaps

Subject: The word "bootleg".......
Folks. First off, Ia ppreciate all of teh kind reviews. This show was DOPE and the recording luckily came out to match the energy of teh night.

Secondly, the word "bootleg" really irks us tapers. Bootleg is a word stemming from someone who illegally records a musical performance and then turns and sells it for a personal profit. The word "bootleg" does not apply to teh jamband world because the music/shows are ALLOWED to be recorded LEGALLY and us tapers DO NOT SELL the recordings. They are distributed freely and we DO NOT make a personal profit :) These are just considered free live music downloads ;)

Sorry, but as a longtime taper of this types of music, it really irks us tapers as a whole, because the word bootleg is thrown at the lowest form of tapers. And we are not even close to that league of taper ;) We are the 'Good Tapers' and give our recordings away for free, juts like it was meant to be :) Please don't take this the wrong way folks. I am not trying or intending to be some 'elitist taper' or anything like that. I am just educating you, the fans, on the labeling of shows you can get freely, as 'bootleg's. It simply gives us tapers a bad name in most respects :) Have a great night and everyone enjoy this fine download :)

P.S.-I wish lotus would come back to Mr. Smalls(or ANYWHERE in Pittsburgh) again soon. They used to frequent Mr. Smalls at LEAST 2-3 times a year, once in the spring, once in the summer, once in the fall, and usually once in the winter time. But last year they played only twice(This show, and the 6/6/2007 Free Arts Fest show) and thats it. And they havent played da burgh since then :'( This was their last 2-set show in Pittsburgh. That sucks for the Lotus fans of the Burgh :( Please come back soon Lotus :'(

Wish I'd been at this one. Having seen them last in April, it's been too long. This show makes me jonesy. It's got a great groove and solid sound quality.

Unfortunately I was not able to make this show...however on a whim and word of mouth i copped this download. Let me tell you it flat out kicks ass. To me, Lotus always seemed to stick to a more jazz-fusion sound without much progression and improv. However, recently (along with the Jam on the River 5/26/07 show) they have been really catching their groove creating explorative tracks worked with thick instrumentation. From start to finish this show just glides right through.

My personal fav's are "Marisol" and "The Last Hurrah" from the first set. Crowd goes bananas after those back to back. A+ recording as well.

Yo Bean, I'm the kid you met who talked to you about the Bisco bootleg. You are THE MAN and this recording is amazing. Glad I got to meet you and thank you so much for letting us relive this kickass night. I will see you at Bisco on the 21st!

Sorry to ruin the last song by elbowing, kicking and stomping like I was at some punk rock throwing bone whatever. I was hammered and Lotus was great. I don't remember the last couple songs or ruining your night so let me know the next time you see Lotus so we can bury the hatchet.

Subject: that kid
im so glad to be able to hear alkaline becuase
during the encore the whole time there was this tall kid who was dancing like he was at some punk rock throw some bone shows, ruined the encore beacuse i had to hold everything back not to deck him in his face and i didnt want to get kicked outa mr smalls because its sweet.
but if your that KID that was all over the place steppin on my feet and knockin and bumpin into everyone, you know you suck and you might as well give up at everything else you do becacause your gona fail miserably .
that is all

Thanks Bean! Its people like u that let us all enjoy nights like this over and over again! And what a Magical Night it was..Lotus brought it in a big way for the spring tour closer(and the last 2 set show for awhile!). The crowd was on fire at Mr Smalls this night..total shananigans indeed! Set 1 was great..Set 2 Was of Legend. Just Download It..I promise you wont be sorry. The Fact that the sound Quality on this boot is Phenomenal doesnt hurt either!..Thanks again Bean! and thanks to everyone at the show who made a night like this happen! Lotus For Life..Mike D.
